Landscape wall hanging

We have had a beautiful November but as it draws to a close so does our double digit temperatures and beautiful blue skies. The last couple of days have been cloudy and damp, same today, but colder and I saw a few flakes of snow earlier this morning.

Last night was our guild meeting, lots of beautiful quilts for show and tell. I was able to finish my landscape wall hanging, my contribution to show and tell. I am really pleased with the way it turned out. If I did birch trees again, I would do something different with the leaves, they don't look just right to me. The workshop provided lots of different techniques and ideas for the variety of fabrics and fibers to use, which, if anyone was interested in doing landscapes, was very interesting. The information will help me when I start another wall hanging I am doing for the International Ploughing Match competition next year.

The wall hangings that I am making for my two daughters for Christmas are next on my list of "to finish". Both of the tops are completed, and quilting almost done on one, the second top is finished but have yet to sandwich the batting and backing and start the quilting.
Have a great Friday.
